Thelma and Louise Ride Again - Part 2

Third capitol of California, BeniciaImage via Wikipedia

Tried last night for the life of me and I could not get this into my post - operator error no doubt!  
We had such a good day - it cleared out all the cobwebs for me and being in cooler sea breezes totally refreshed me from the valley heat.

Benicia was our destination and after there we  ventured on to two quilt shops Cotton Patch in Lafeyette, Ca., and Thimble Creek, Concord, Ca.  Both minutes away from the lovely downtown Benicia, Ca.

On our trip home we stopped off at the "Premium Outlets" near Vacaville, and I introduced Kim (I can't remember who was Thelma or Louise on that trip...) to purchasing French (yes, made in France) cosmetics at an outlet shop there.  (One learns about these things in the old country...)

Thanks for stopping by - come again.

Sounds like a wonderful trip!! I love embroidery but am a beginner! Seeing others' work is amazing and I want to become as good as them! It's such a relaxing activity along with knitting, quilting, and such!!

I think I have said this girls are just having way too much fun!! Thanks for sharing......I enjoyed reading the things you want to focus on Mind/body/quilting in the earlier post....very centred .....I think all of us get caught up in the day to day stuff and forget to stop and feel the grass under our bare feet sometimes....have a great weekend...!

I remember when those outlets were just being built...everytime I get back "home" to see family we go and I'm amazed at just how much the area has grown. Vacaville used to be a little is the IT PLACE!!
